Donate a Bed
Our dogs and cats love to sleep on Kuranda beds, but we don't have enough for everyone. If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price for a another dog or cat to sleep in comfort, please donate a Kuranda bed.

Our Adoptable Pet List

We are very sorry to say that we are no longer doing cat rescue. The over-population with cats is epidemic and inexcusable. We are failing as a society to look after our companion animals. The solution is so simple. Spay and neuter.


Please join us in our efforts to educate the public of the existence of puppy mills in Southwestern Ontario and the conditions that typically prevail in them. Please see for more information and what you can do to help. We ask that you only contact us if you are serisouly considering adding a pet to your family. It is frustrating to have people contact us in regards to a specific animal and then have them drop out at the last minute. Please consider your decision carefully before contacting us.

Who We Are

We are a very small team; a husband, wife and baby daughter to be more precise. We take in as many animals as we have room and funds available for. We are doing what we can to make a difference for discarded, abused and unloved companion animals. We do not have non-profit or charitable status, we fund our rescue efforts with full-time jobs and the occasional donation from very special people. If you are interested in donating to our cause, you can forward your donation directly to our veterinarian at:

Shaw Road Veterinary Clinic
18 Shaw Road
R. R. #1
Dorchester, ON
N0L 1G4.

Adopting a friend

In order to adopt one of our critters, you must complete an adoption application. We will check your references and do a home visit where we will get to know your family better. Once all of that has been done we will help you find the best match for your family. We do charge an adoption fee to help cover vetting expenses. Our normal adoption fee for dogs and puppies is $300. This may vary in the case of unusual circumstances. An adoption fee collected today, enables us to rescue another dog tomorrow. Please note that while we attempt to accurately assess and gain as much information as possible, we cannot guarantee health, longevity, or temperament of any animal. Many of our fosters come from unknown backgrounds and puppy mill dogs have no accurate record of lineage.

Come Visit Us!

If you would like to come and meet any of our fosters please call ahead so we can be ready to greet you. We love to show off our fosters as well as the many other animals that have found sanctuary on our little piece of paradise.
